I can Make a Case for Keenum

The Minnesota Vikings defeated the Tampa Bay Bucs 34 – 17 , on Sunday. I was certainly impressed, by Minnesota backup Quarterback Case Keenum. He threw for 369 yards, 2 touchdowns, and no interceptions, and more importantly he had success  with the long ball.  He threw 11 passes over 20 yards, connecting on 7.

I have to admit, I didn’t know much about Keenum, except he had been with several teams, as a backup. I googled him, and was surprised I had forgotten, what a great college career he had.

He starred at the University of Houston, where he still holds most NCAA career passing records, including:

Most passes                                 =  1,546 of 2,294
Most Passing Yards                   =  19,217 yards
Most Passing Touchdowns      =  155
Most Rushing TD’s by a QB     =  23
He holds several other records, including a 9 touchdown performance against Rice.

Keenum was able to have such a great performance, with the help of 3 key offensive weapons.

Stephon Diggs      8  catches  for 73 yards
Adam Thielen      5  catches  for 98 yards
Dalvin  Cook         5  catches  for 72 yards                                                                                                                         27 carries  for  97 yards

We’ll see if he can bring his magic throughout the season.
